About eight years ago Andy B. Franck
(Brainstorm) formed Symphorce and “Become Death” is their
sixth album. They have toured several times with the likes of
Mercyful Fate, Kamelot, Grave Digger and Sonata Arctica. I have
always been a big fan of Andy’s work with Brainstorm but I never
really been a huge Symphorce fan.
And this album doesn’t really do anything for
Ok, musically all ten tracks are executed on a
very high level, performed by a band that certainly spent a lot of
time in the writing of this release. Dennis Ward’s production is
strong as usual but the album is far too modern for me, there’s even
new metal riffs (aaaarrrgghhh). The only thing that lifts this album
is Andy’s world-class singing, and I am really looking forward to
the new Brainstorm album.
I want traditional heavy metal not this modern
crap. All in all not an album for an ignorant like myself.
